Carbon offset

The 1st Waste Management team have long been committed to improving the company’s carbon footprint and have taken several steps to offset emissions in recent years.

The most significant of these has been partnering with carbonfootprint.com, environmental consultants offering a range certified offset schemes.

These projects allow businesses to compensate for their own emissions by funding CO2 savings elsewhere, delivering an immediate impact where it’s needed most.

Not only do these initiatives reduce pollution, they also lead to biodiversity, job creation and reforestation in some of the world’s most impoverished communities.

In signing up to the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), 1st Waste Management have managed to effect positive change.

The company is now inviting customers to follow suit and sign up to fully offset all carbon emissions generated from scheduled waste collections. This is a cost-effective and economically efficient means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, whilst helping to combat climate change.

Those embarking on the carbon offset scheme will be provided with a fantastic certificate for display within the workplace.
